What is a steam cleaner?
A steam cleaner is an appliance that heats water in a self-contained boiler powered by using electricity, this steam is then pressurised to sanitise, clean and deodorise virtually any surface.
What are benefits of using dry steam cleaners?
They are eco-friendly in using only water and heat to clean. They don’t leave behind toxic residue or stain clothing like some cleaning agents can.
They kill bacteria and germs. Bacteria such as e-coli, listeria, and salmonella are killed upon contact with the use of steam cleaners, as well as viruses, mildew, and dust mites. They are very versatile and with the right attachments can be used nearly anywhere on any surface.

Which type of surfaces are suitable for steam cleaning?
Vapour steam cleaning can be used on almost any hard or soft surface including: hardwood floors, counter tops, bathrooms, windows, grout, tile, upholstered furniture, curtains, bed spreads, auto interiors, and even stuffed animals. Most steam vapour cleaners come with a variety of attachments for different types of cleaning jobs.
When steaming carpets or upholstered furniture, wait until the surface is dry (about 15 minutes) and then vacuum with a HEPA vacuum cleaner to pick up all the dead dust mites and other dirt the steam cleaner loosened and pulled to the surface.
If you are using vapour steam cleaning on carpet, follow with a HEPA vacuum cleaner after it is dry to remove the waste that the vapour steam cleaner loosened and released during cleaning. Most steam cleaners have no method, other than cloths or bonnets, to extract debris.
Steam cleaners will loosen dirt and baked-on mess. They work so well because the heat from the steam emulsifies the dirt, coupled with light agitation from a brush or mop lifts the emulsified soiling away from the surface. A final wipe with a microfibre cloth results in a clean, sanitised surface.
